    Default 50/50 Shared Care: Do you think it is realistic?

    There is a lot of good information on shared care contained within this article


    http://m.theaustralian.com.au/news/f...-1225960157922

    It's clearly a developmental disaster for children, who under perform at school, use up their emotional resources trying to switch from one home dynamic to another, and cannot fail to be affected by the tension that results from two estranged parents constantly attempting to negotiate arrangements.

    For example, boys in shared care are more likely to have hyperactivity and attention problems.

    Many of the problems seen by these kids are those seen in foster kids ie attachment disorders and disturbances coming from not having a consistent environment.

    Every person deserves a stable, consistent home. I have no idea why this is lost sight of when it comes to children, especially those already dealing with breakup.

    You keep saying that you think 50/50 has great benefits for all involved, including the children, but out of curiosity, what are these benefits in your opinion? Specifically the ones relating to the children?
    For the children in our case, the opportunity to have a more involved relationship with dad, at dads house on dads terms. The opportunity to participate in out of school activities including play dates etc on dads week ( in mums time it's no I have no $$ or time or mum doesn't see the point/benefit including of swimming lessons )
    For the child to not feel like they are missing out with in our case dad.
    Also for the record I would prefer to share 50/50 care with my ex. I don't doubt that a single parent household can be a bit stressful. In our situation we would prefer to assist with preferably 50/50 care to assist ease some of that stress.
    In our situation in ideal circumstances with 2 bio parents who can do the right thing in a 50/50 arrangement it would benefit the children's lifestyle financially and emotionally.

    I think the generalization of single parent receiving welfare occurs because its what you hear of most.

    I live in the suburbs so I doubt there's many single mums out here on that kind of income. In saying that why should a single mum who has obviously studied/worked hard to achieve that be paying full childcare rate when in a 2 parent family 1 person chooses to not work/ work little pays much less? Hope that makes sense.

    From ALOT of what I've read childcare is a pretty big financial issue especially for a single parent regardless of income. Definetly seems like an area that is flawed.
